How to Install the Wedi Fundo Primo Shower Pan (Step-by-Step)

From Home Repair Tutor on Thursday, February 8th, 2018 in & Videos
Our prior video showed how to cut the wedi Fundo Primo shower pan. Today you'll see how to install the wedi Fundo Primo shower pan and curb. Wedi shower systems are very easy to install, we'll share our tips
We're installing the Wedi Fundo Primo shower kit ( 
This is part of a video series and the rest of the videos are available in our YouTube Playlist 

First, check the shower subfloor with a level. In this example our shower floor sloped a bit. We address how to fix this problem later.
The drain pipe should be set by a professional or plumber. It needs to be 1/8" above the subfloor.
Mix modified thin-set according to the manufacturer's directions.
Mapei's Kerabond T was used and we added Keralastic to make it a modified thin-set.
Burn the thin-set onto the wood subfloor using the flat side of a 1/4" x 1/4" square notched trowel. Then use the notched side to trowel more thin-set onto the subfloor. Directional troweling is recommended, i.e. trowel notches face the same direction.
We applied a thicker layer of thin-set on the sloped side of the shower subfloor to correct it.
Back butter the wedi Fundo Primo shower pan with the flat side of the trowel and Kerabond/Keralastic. Also, use directional troweling with the notch side of the trowel on the back of the Fundo Primo shower pan.
The notches on the back of the shower pan should be in the same direction as the notches on the subfloor.
Embed the Wedi Fundo Primo into the thin-set on the subfloor and compress the trowel notches by walking on the pan.
Check the pan is level then apply a copious amount of Wedi Joint Sealant on the pan's rabbet joint. Add Wedi Joint Sealant to the curb's rabbet and apply thin-set to the bottom of the curb.
Embed the curb into the shower pan's rabbet and compress the Joint Sealant. Check the Wedi Lean curb for level.
Finally, add the rubber gasket and pipe connection.

I’m all about new products and innovation, but this system just seems cost prohibitive. Durock with aqua defense would be a fraction of the cost and honestly doesn’t take much longer to install.

The bottom of the drain appears proud of the bottom of the Wedi pan. The hole in the subfloor obviously accommodates it. How do you address a cement basement floor?

It is nice to see the realities of construction as opposed to the “perfect” constructions that you often see on tv. Nice work Steve.
